I’m getting this errordamn, I've been trying to authorize a library since yesterday, but server is offline.
It amazes me why they still use this method of copyright protection....after a bit of research it seems steinberg has been having issues for years....thank you, I saw that, let's hope they can find what the issue is, it's disappointing not to be able to use the software you have purchased. No update today though
In the meantime if you want to try out VEP7 I suggest to install the keyless demo from the product page. It does not require any activation, but you can't save the project with this version: https://www.vsl.co.at/Vienna_Software_Package/Vienna_Ensemble_PROIm new to VSL....and want to try Vep7 but this has out me off.....
It's actually bizarre when you consider the server isn't even having to operate some kind of cloud authorisation the way iLok does now. It's basically a giant database of keys with a cryptographic front-end to check the licence codes and transfer a blob of data to a remote machine when a new licence needs activating. I'd expect them to be able to be able to set up database replicator and a front-end traffic director and to do any upgrades behind the scenes before pulling the switch.What surprises me is that it seems there isn't a backup system supplying for the primary system when it goes down. Unless they are both down, and this can be a really serious issue.
The abysmal quality of the client interface (at least on the Mac), where you can't even sort the licenses alphabetically, is actually not showing much love for this software. eLicenser has been the main source of troubles on my system.However, I'd bet that Steinberg didn't buy eLicenser because it was a good idea but because the original supplier was about to go under...and haven't invested more than they absolutely have to to keep it running.
